Over the board, I would have trouble finding the right time to double these positions. In practice, I would not cube any of them. I would be especially cautious so long as I did not own my 5pt.

The four checkers White has locking down his 2pt and 3pt could be a big problem for him. Right now, all of his checkers are alive. If he cannot fill his double gap, however, a gap that is currently occupied by Blue, he may end up burning a couple of checkers later on. When and if White does get a hit, he may have trouble containing the checkers he hits.

That could add up to a double, but I confess, I would miss it. Position 3 is the one I think makes the best double for Blue.
